Orekhovo (Russian: Орехово) is a Moscow Metro station in Orekhovo-Borisovo Severnoye District, Southern Administrative Okrug, Moscow. It is on the Zamoskvoretskaya Line, between Tsaritsyno and Domodedovskaya stations.

Orekhovo opened on 30 December 1984 as part of an extension but was closed the very next day because of flooding. It reopened on 9 February 1985.

The station was designed by architects L. Popov, V. Volovich, and G. Mun. Both the walls and pillars are faced with white marble, and there is a cast bronze sculpture by L. Berlin (devoted to the theme "Protection of Nature") above the escalators. The entrances to the station are located between Shipilovsky Prospekt and Bazhenova Street, on the east side of Tsaritsino Park.
